Query: Has Jordan Allan joined Elgin City on loan or has he been released. Had some injury problems but was scoring regularly for U18 team at end of last season.

I think he's still with us.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 22:08:57
Still with us, there are 2 Jordan Allans.


3.) 18 Jul 2017 22:52:58
The Jordan Allan at Elgin is 22 years old. Ours has just turned 18.


4.) 18 Jul 2017 23:07:13

Free man in the back three, is a really key position in the way NES sets up his team. Coady has filled the position brilliantly and been given a lot of game time pre-season and in the season to date, in order to grow into the position. Who else, other than Saiss could play that role? Saiss has been pivotal to our success to date playing as one of the two defensive Central midfielders so would not particularly want to move him. likely to be a completely different starting eleven against Bristol Rovers, so will be interesting to see who is given that role. Any suggestions?

Probably Ryan Bennett.


2.) 17 Sep 2017 18:29:22
I actually think we will be better away from home all season, we are excellent at hitting teams on the break with the likes of cav Jota Costa etc, and a quick passing game. at home teams will come to frustrate us like Millwall, in fact even Bristol rovers may be tricky, I wood like to see botatini play ins front two now and again to give us that other option.


3.) 18 Sep 2017 08:00:22
Completely new starting 11 against Rovers expect Bright Price Zyro Bennett MGW Norris Marshall Ronan to feature.


4.) 18 Sep 2017 15:27:54
MGW injured I think. Not even sure we have 22 fit players, or rather 20 fit outfield players. Deslandes will probably play and likely Wilson will be on the bench at least. Might even start up front, as we don't have a lot of choice outside of our stars.

On the basis of a 11-player rotation, which Nuno has done for previous cup matches,

Norris
? Bennett Deslandes
Ronan Price N'Diaye Marshall
Bright Wilson Zyro

? = Hause or Douglas if fit, otherwise someone playing out of position.

I wonder if we'll see Batth moved back into the cup team. Needs someone to hold it together, and looking at that list I'm not inspired. Price, I guess, odd though it appears. Or Bennett maybe.


5.) 19 Sep 2017 17:20:18
Me again.

E&S predicting similar to me, but with Coady in the back 3 and Doc instead of N'Diaye. I'm sticking with N'Diaye and not sure Nuno will risk Coady in a cup match like this. On the other hand, the team does need a leader, and if not Coady then Batth.

Will know in a couple of hours.


6.) 19 Sep 2017 19:14:26
So it's Coady AND Batth!
But no Bennett - perhaps he'll feature in the next league match.

Also Rasmussen, whoever he is, rather than Donovan Wilson.

Looking especially at Zyro and to a lesser extent Price for some game-changing play here.

Just a quick post to highlight the quality of the coverage of U23 game on Southampton TV.

I moved to England in 1958 and have watched and supported Wolves ever since. In that time we have had great teams and great individual players; far too many to mention. We have also had countless managers/ head coaches in that time. Some have obviously been more successful than others and some have got our team playing better than the sum of the constituent parts. Unfortunately, I am enjoying an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka at the moment and having to follow our fortunes second hand through all possible internet sites. The Derby County sites extended highlights were fantastic in that respect. Despite the second hand nature of what I have seen and read, I am pretty confident in my assertion that I have never seen a Wolves coach who has had the degree of impact on our team, the individual players and our positive style of play, that Nuno and his staff have had to date. What they have achieved in a relatively short period of time is nothing short of remarkable. The turgid, insipid displays we have had to endure in the last two seasons have been enough to try the patience of the most ardent fans. When a new coach arrives and declares that he can make our players better players one can be excused for taking this with a degree of cynicism, as we have had so many false dans. BUT Nino has delivered. Coady, Bright, Saiss and Doherty. Where he can't make a silk purse from a sow, s ear he has brought in those he can improve. To hear him talk about how much more the players can improve is fantastic. Those who are willing to listen, learn and above all work hard and professionally will stay and flourish, those who can't or won't will be moved on. There appears a whole new level of professionalism about everything the coaching staff are doing and demanding: bodes really positively for our future. Hopefully the days of relying on distant past glories may be coming to an end.
Bit over the top I know, but from this side of the World with the Indian Ocean lapping gently on the beach, everything looks pretty positive.

Totally summed it up scottish wolf. Excellently put mate.

Hope Graham's explanation of his omission from Austria squad was legitimate. He and Costa are the two players who can run past players. That ability to take an opponent out of the game is what is required to break down well drilled defensive teams. All the passing in the world will never beat the threat posed by wide players with pace and tricks. Jordan Graham is one such player and one we must hold on to.

Totally and utterly agree.


2.) 21 Jul 2017 21:14:42
I disagree if you play 343 and you got a striker who plays on the shouder of there back 4 . playing perfick balls down the middle and someone like dick' gayle ect will put them away. it was a perfick ball for dicko last game but could not control. I think we need both wingers and mfs to do this. not a real big team bar willy lol from set pieces ect and no big man down the middle. I think nuno will mad if we cross in from deep. more like that will cut in and play it a cross the middle ect.

Hope Lambert gives a few youngsters a start tomorrow. Could do with resting some regulars. There is one player who we need to rest for two, what may appear to be, conflicting reasons. That player is Dave Edwards. Nobody can disagree that he has given more than any other player in order to help us survive. He has covered every blade of grass at Molineux and chased down more opposition players than any of his team mates and most importantly chipped in ten goals. When captain he has led by example. Deserves a rest.
The second reason is that despite his strengths we need to find a way of playing without him because he can't do what players in his position need to do. pass! I'm not being sarcastic, I don't mean five, ten, twenty yard passes I mean passes that split defences, like Marshall's pass to Dicko, last time out. Edwards can't do it because he doesn't see those passes and never will.
If we upgrade squad next season he will be sidelined. Deserves better, so we should pay up his contract and allow him to move on a free. Not likely to happen but would show touch of class and show fans that we mean business moving forward.

Agree with all bar the pay up his contract👍 he'll be the perfect sub to close out games.


2.) 22 Apr 2017 11:55:13
Scottish Wolf. There is an article on the official Wolves site entitled 'GAFFER / No Gifts' which may interest you. The implication is that PL will not be handing out any ‘gifts’ of first team action unless players prove they deserve it.

Quite right too as I would be most irritated to do a 300 mile round trip to watch a team of 'experiments'.

Our original choice for manager, Julen Lopetegui, faced Italy with a Spanish lineup with no striker, and beat them 3 - 0. Fluid front three which is what we have, all with the capacity of scoring goals.

Must be imminent arrivals as Dicko interest is on the increase. Agent has been given the green light to find him a new club. If, for whatever reason, arrivals don't materialise then we won't sell. Numbers game would suggest it will have to be two strikers in before we let him go. Can't personally see them being anything other than continental. Days of us buying British style forward are long gone so the Hugill and Rhodes stories are the result of lazy journalism, recycling rumours from pre Nuno days.

Departure of Edwards should be made easier for the player given the service to Wolves over the years. Unlikely to get a new club willing to pay his current salary so we should pay off remainder of this years contract to ease a departure. Can't see him being used if he stays. Need to free up some space in the squad.

Wouldn't be upset at any of the above happening. None of the outgoings are likely to be first choices and Edwards and Mason don't fit into our new system. Edwards needs to be playing regularly to keep his place in Welsh squad, so has to seek a move. Didn't feel Dicko gave us any sort of lift when he came on against Cardiff. Quite the opposite and he should have squared the ball across goal rather than shooting into side netting. Looked at that a few times and it was a good chance to get a point we didn't really deserve.

If Everton were to buy big name centre forward and Calvert - Lewis became available on loan, he would be a brilliant option. Unfortunately he was that good tonight there is probably no chance Everton loaning him out. Shame!

Bonatini had three shots all on target and unlucky not to get on the scoresheet. Excellent first time drive from Doherty pull back in first half, well saved at near post by Archer. Keeper thwarted again with good save after Bonatini dummies to shoot and drew in the defender who he rounded before having his shot charged down by Archer. Then with Archer beaten his volley hit defender and rebounded to safety. He also linked play well, drew defender with good run for Jota's goal and made countless clear runs which midfielders didn't feed. I, for one, think his goals will come, hopefully starting on Tuesday.

If I was new to football and looking for a team to support and had no natural allegiances and was looking for a 'belt and braces' ride over the next few years, I wouldn't look much further than us.
How lucky am I that 60 years ago when my Dad looked to take us south of the border, he chose Wolverhampton. Especially fortunate, as another popular destination at the time was Coventry!
Only regret is that Patrick Thistle haven't flourished since they lost my support.

Reason it doesn't just happen is because selling team are in pole position. They will sell when they are sure they have got the maximum price possible for their asset. If means waiting until the last minute to sell that's what they'll do. Our bids are probably in and closer to window close selling club will let all bidders know price in pole position and encourage a bidding war. Can't think we are the only ones looking at our top targets, whoever they may be!

I'm sure if we had wanted Gallagher we would have got him. Same goes for Wells, Rhodes and Other UK based players. Can't see us getting anyone other than a continental striker and would not be at all surprised if it was somebody not yet mentioned. I do think it will be someone Nuno believes will make the difference between promise and delivering on that promise. Looked good to date but too many chances not being taken.

Costa, along with all of our key loan signings, will be happy to stay if by January we are looking a good promotion bet. Jota, Boly and Cav and Neves all want premier league football. Positive experience of Nino and his staff will persuade them that this is possible by staying put. Will also understand that Fosun don't want to visit the Premier League for one season but will invest heavily to stay there and progress the plan to the next stage. All new arrivals have expressed their surprise at stature of our club and the excellent facilities. Success on the pitch will ensure all those we want to keep we will keep.
